I was at a memorial for most of Saturday, and got to see only a handful of games in the evening. Perhaps the biggest surprise (other than defending Big-10 champion Illinois losing at home to San Jose St.) has to be the Florida rout of Tennessee, described more fully below. The Pac-10, so dominant a week ago, got leveled, with UCLA getting blown out at home, 31-17, by Colorado, USC rallying late but falling short against K-State, 27-20, and CAL losing its first game of the year to Air Force, 23-21. As it turns, my upset specials almost came true, with Michigan struggling but holding off Utah, 10-7, and Ohio State rallying to defeat Cincinnati, 23-19. And yes, Notre Dame is still undefeated.
